Step 1: Basic Recorder Connections
Connecting the antenna
These connections enable you to watch
and record TV programmes using this
recorder. If the antenna signal is
connected via a Cable Box or Satellite
Receiver, ensure that these devices are
turned on in order to watch or record
the cable programmes.
If you want to connect to a VCR
and/or a separate Cable Box/
Satellite Receiver, see page 21~23 for
other possible connections.
– Depending on how you have currently
connected your TV channel (directly from an
off-air antenna or cable box or VCR), you'll
have to disconnect some of the cables before
you make the antenna connection.
TIPS: Before making or changing any connections, make sure that all the devices are disconnected
from the power outlet.
